TT - Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted at MizB's Should Be Reading.

"Thus far I have gone, tracing a secure way over the pathless seas, the very stars themselves being witnesses and testimonies of my triumph. Why not still proceed over the untamed yet obedient element? What can stop the determined heart and resolved will of man?"

- Robert Walton (Frankenstein by Mary Shelley)

Frankenstein's one of those books that everyone has heard of. And, Frankenstein's monster, like Dracula, is one of the most famous monsters in pop culture. Frankenstein or The Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley is my first in the list of always-wanted-to-read classics. I have just started reading it, but I'm already loving it!

Wow! The language is so gorgeous...the "old school" language only found in classics. I love the cover, too.

Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

I have always wanted to go back and read so many of those classics that I never read in school but so many other books always grab my attention first:) Glad to hear you are enjoying it!

Creations By Laurel-Rain Snow - I know, it's a bit of work getting used to that language, but I love it too!

Shari - I have a classics-complex! For someone who really liked to read, I never did read any classics in school. So I'm making up for it!

Jennifer - I know what you mean, it is hard to find a non-YA book blog!

Thanks for stopping by!
